If you don't pass an exam, you can retake it 8 days later. This means that you'll have 7 days to study for the exam.
Keep in mind that you won't be able to pause the timer after you start taking an exam. The exam timer will continue to count down even if your computer shuts down — so be sure that you won't be disturbed while taking the exam. If you do lose your connection, you can resume the exam where you left off when you’re connected again, but the timer will not stop during this time.
